Google can also be rowdy

In the southernmost part of South America lies the small village of “Puerto Williams.” Even there, Google Street View has been on the road, accompanied in parts by a boy on a bicycle. But after a few shots, the boy falls by the side of the road. Whether he was hit by the Google car is unfortunately not clear from the still images.
